Title
(EN) Method of simultaneous playing in single-player video games
Abstract
(EN)

The invention relates to the method of simultaneous playing in video games designed for a single player. The invention is realized with a computer unit and uses at least one display device, at least one computer device that generates the game image display and at least one game controller controlled by the user. The method of controlling the figure according to the invention is characterized in that the player using one controller simultaneously controls at least two characters (1), (2) while each of the characters controlled by the same user is displayed simultaneously in a separate viewport (6), (7), which makes a separate story universe (A), (B) and the input signal from the controller is transformed by the software synchronization layer including predefined modifiers specific for a given story universe (A), (B).
